    Dude your views are in the trash over this pos truck, besides i thought this was going to be a beater truck ?


      It’s not about views, it’s about teaching and learning, not really working on the Cummins till spring or buying anything new just yet

    Like one of my last comments, you’re an inspiration. People can talk crap and complain. What ev’s. You’re taking a huge step in doing all this. Plus showing us what goes on in between is exactly what needs to be shown, even if it’s another how many videos of the bed. All good to me. 👍🏽

    Ryan, take your time.⏰ I'm enjoying learning 📓with you as you go through the process.🛠 Good things take time.💯 We "Subs" are along for the ride. Do your thing Brother.👍 Great video.📹 Thanx for the update.👌 Looking forward to the next video post! Peace!✌️

  • dimo2224

    The bed will be perfectly fine bro. Don’t pay mind to the journeymen body guys commenting that automatically assume u should do it like they can. Coming from someone who owns an automotive service repair and body shop. Everyone starts somewhere. And the most important thing is that your next project will be better and so on. Your doing good bro. Always enjoy your uploads. 👍🏼💯💯💯

    Dog this truck is screaming for a new bed! You can pick one up in Texas for 5-600$ no rust or dents. Just a thought. But hey it’s content keep it up. Your doing great!

  • Heather

    RYAN!! HELP INFO NEEDED! My my 2017 Ram 3500 has rear air bag suspension I just saw this last night while trying to hard wire my tailgate light bar and failing but that’s another story....If I have air bag suspension in the rear ( I don’t think it’s a thing in the front, haven’t looked yet) what are my options for lifts. I was looking at zone but now I don’t think that’s even possible anymore without costing me $3-$4k 🤦‍♀️😭 I don’t know a whole lot about trucks I’m learning as I go - Heather 🇨🇦


      Bds makes an airbag lift I think! The air suspension makes things difficult

    At the end of the day it's your truck and if you wanted to fill it full of concrete and run it off a cliff you definitely could do that. Look at it this way your never gonna please everyone even if you would have done all the work perfectly your gonna have all the keyboard warriors come out of the wood works and act like they could have done better. If truth be told they probably couldn't or even wouldn't attempt to do what your doing. Just keep doing you and putting out great videos and all of us that came to watch and not bitch will keep watching

    Stop using degreaser to wipe panels down use acetone or lacquer thinner. Degreaser has water in it. Or use 91% rubbing alcohol.

    If you lay the body filler down right it will not crack or brake I know for a fact we run a body shop and we also derby I had a 76 Chevy I derby and it was full of body filler on the box and after the derby the box was smashed to shit and the truck was rolled an the body filler never cracked. All depends how you lay it down and how u use it

    Ryan, the people who give you negative comments need to remember that your whole reason for doing this project was to show that the average joe can do this. Sure, people who have done this work before or as a career know how to do it correctly. You’re showing us your mistakes and that how we learn. I have a little rust spots on my truck & I have been watching you to learn. Thanks again for all you do making your videos and look forward to seeing your next videos!

    Hey Ryan, first off love the channel and the Cummins. I took auto body in college and have been in the field for 3 years, I’m definitely a newbie as well and bondo work isn’t my strong suit 😂 just working on getting everything straight and flat is the main situation but you can do anything with some bondo and a welder. Driveway projects are the best one I’m currently building my 2014 ram 1500 and am thinking about installing my 4 inch rough country kit right in my driveway!

    Keep on Trucking!... ever consider just to buy a box? up here in Canada many times we got guys that get boxes shipped up from USA and they are rust free ones. if my truck was as bad as yours I would consider it if my plans where to keep it stock looks. but since I am considering a Street Pre runner concept that has wide fenders some travel and yet some load stabilizer air bags so I can haul my race car with it. but that said my box was Linex from the start. so top is great. under it is not. and well mine has the side fender covers. so it is a holly one like yours on the box. I did not put the money in the work like you did. simply cut a metal sheet in a shape so I could rivet and glue the body. Then mesh the fiberglass and just bondo it. it is not a great job put 3M tape and the fender covers back on. slaped some black paint on the bottom half and and got some Cheep used 20 inch rims and tires. anyone could tell it is a crap paint job. but guess what. atleast it was cheap and the truck looks ok from 20 feet.

  • DieselRay_6.7

    I'm not gonna be a hater but can you please get a welding cart so you can chain down that bottle before you knock it over and blow the valve off! I've seen a valve break off 20ft from me. Lucky no one got hurt.
